The UK government is set to be the latest to test facial recognition technology on a large scale. British border officials plan to test a new facial recognition system at airports this summer to see if it can boost security and reduce overcrowding.
American and French airports were the first to test face rec and both are now testing second generation technologies. Similarly the London Olympics committee and the Nashville School District are both testing face recognition software, but the most ambitious project to date seems to be the nationwide deployment of face recognition in South Korea.
